I had visited the Barcelo many years ago as a child and was somewhat enchanted by it. My return this year was due to an overbooked flight and the airline putting us up as we normally stay in Zihua these days. The hotel fell short of my expectations regarding the lobby staff,

Hotel's Favourite
I loved Ixtapa! Hot and sunny every day! This is a great hotel, compact, not much walking on resort, access to a great beach that stretches for miles! Across the street from the hotels is shopping, at either vendors or a mall, plus liquor store and great Mexican bars &

Our 14 day stay at the Barcelo Ixtapa was wonderful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The pool area was very enjoyable and we liked the rolled towels that were placed on the loungers every morning. We really liked the size of the resort and that the pools and the beach

We ourselves do not take any American dollars as we deal strictly in Mexican pesos more cost efficient for us.I know that they will exchange some American dollars for pesos but you require your passport to do so and then it is only a limited amount each day as they don't keep a boat load of money on hand.Alot of customer pay for their hotel by visa but we noticed this year when we went off site to eat that a lot of the resturants are not accepting credit cards cash only.

We didn't have WIFI while we were there, but I understand from a friend that was with us it is $10 per day. You may be able to do some haggling with them and get it for free, worth a shot anyways!

Hello We just returned yesterday from Ixtapa. Good resort. Book your A la Carte right away. Set your towels out on the chairs early to get a spot. (one of us got up early to go do this every morning before 5 am ) Rolled towels mean that the chairs are not taken yet. Restaurant by the pool is good. Food is pretty good at all restaurants. A 20 pesos tip usually gets prompt service. A tip is recommended. The staff at the pool bar seem to only respond to a tip quickly otherwise they will look to see who has tip money and serve those first - doesn't seem to matter who actually gets there first. Across the street is the market and the town of Ixtapa. Easy walking access. A trip to ixtapa island is great. We brought pesos (easier to do at home). The beach is amazing (sand is very fine). If you do not want to purchase premium ask for an upgrade to ocean front at least beautiful views. However keep in mind rooms near #310 or lower are near the club so at night it may be noisy. There is a Mexican fiesta every Friday night so do not book your a la carte's on that night. This is included in your package. There is also entertainment every night in the theatre. It is different every night and it is pretty good entertainment. starts at 9:30 pm (usually 1 hour to 1.5 hours.) You can swim/play in the waves once you get passed the break/wave. Not for children though as sometimes the waves can churn you up. If you have any other questions I would be happy to answer. Have a wonderful vacation.

We paid for the wifi for 2 weeks. First week was 50 Canadian and the second week was 40. You can use up to 3 devices so we split it with some friends.
